As of January 2019, the X MAX Starry is on its third version. The updated model now includes haptic feedback to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature, an improved mouthpiece, and more. Check out the full breakdown of these changes over on our blog post announcing the X MAX Starry Version 3.
Who's the X MAX Starry for?
The X MAX Starry is for anyone looking for a quality portable vaporizer at a great price. Full digital control, a pocketable size, swappable battery, haptic feedback, a magnetic, zirconia mouthpiece and an anodized aluminum body. The Starry delivers features that we don’t see in vaporizers at twice the price.
POTV limited edition
We're big fans of the Starry and teamed up with X-MAX to re-work the style. All black with discreet CNC'd logos. The only difference is the styling.
The Starry vaporizer is powered by a single 18650 battery (included) that is removable so you can just swap it out and keep going all day, but you might not rush out to buy a spare since we got 80 minutes of run time off a single charge. You can’t ask for much more than great battery life and the option to swap in a fresh battery when needed! And we love removable batteries because you can just swap in a new one versus having to send your vaporizer in for warranty if your battery ever dies.
Well made & pocketable
Tired of the sea of plastic shell vapes on the market at this price point? This is where the Starry really stands apart with its anodized aluminum body, magnetic lid enclosure and ceramic zirconia mouthpiece. The size is right, too, coming in at just a smidge bigger than the PAX 3.
Fast heat-up time
The Starry gets up to 390° F in just 25 seconds and to top temp in 35 seconds, perfect for a quick, discreet session.
X MAX has been producing quality vaporizers for the budget vape market for a while now and the Starry sticks to the script with a standard ceramic conduction oven that tastes good and works fast. Your herbs and vapor touch nothing but ceramic and stainless steel.
The Starry’s controls are simple and make sense with three buttons to control on/off, temperature, session timer and Celsius/Fahrenheit display. Turning it on is as simple as holding the power button in for three seconds. Plus, the Starry will buzz gently to let you know when it reaches vaping temperature.
Easy to load. Cool mouthpiece.
Loading is easy with its beveled oven ring and you won’t worry about losing the mouthpiece since it can magnetically stick to the side when open. The ceramic zirconia mouthpiece is strong and super smooth for a comfortable feel that preserves taste.
There are a number of vapes in this price range, but the Starry really stands out. Featuring a pocketable size, great build quality, removable batteries, and a magnetic zirconia mouthpiece it has features that you won’t find in some of our favorite vapes at more than twice the price. It really is one of the best values in the vape market!
The Starry vaporizer has a 1-year warranty when purchased from Planet of the Vapes and, as with all vaporizers purchased from us, you are also covered by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

So far I’ve had this thing for about 2-3 weeks and it’s been awesome. I live on a college campus so it’s been a little annoying to smoke all year but with this is super low key and makes life much easier.
Fast shipping for an outstanding product
Very low profile and fun to use. I enjoy that with different temperatures you can get a different taste and experience overall. Definitely one of my favorite pieces.
Best vape ever!
So I've had the Starry for about 2 weeks now, and I absolutely love this vape! She is my 4th dry herb vape, in portable or pen, and moved to first place very quickly. I like how lid is magnetic, and the swival mouthpiece. Was even better when I found the additional 'screen's for concentrates as I was putting shatter on a bowl. The vibrate feature is nice, adjustment in 1° increments perfect for catching all terpenes!
Does what it says!
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead 5 is the head design. Received it with in 3 days of purchase, so the POTV did what they promised. The pros. It's a solid unit! The best feature, is the replaceable battery, and the fact that you can use the unit while it is charging, so you really don't need a spare battery. All rechargeable batteries fail after a given number of recharges. The 6 second button hold instead of the push the start button 5x like most vapes is a great feature if you have arthritis like I do. The cons. Like most vapes I'v tried; they have a small screen just above the herb chamber, and if your herb is dry and dusty it will plug up within 2 hits. It gives you unsatisfying hits. Even at temps over 400, there are no clouds of smoke that you can see, even though it's still doing the job. Now this is what I did to fix the small screen getting plugged up, and I did the same thing on my last vaporizer. Take the small screen out. fill the chamber with herbs loosely, then place the concentrate pad on top of that, and press to pack it. Now when you inhale, if the center of the pad where the most air flow is gets blocked, there is still plenty of space on the sides to allow good air flow. For the price you can't ask for more. But I would like to see this company make a model where you can put a gram or more in the chamber so you don't have to refill it a couple of times. And for whoever designs this, reverse the small screen over the chamber, and put the small screen before the mouthpiece!
